Unico Hair products are a salon quality, Australian hair brand derived from only natural ingrediants. Melbourne hairdresser and owner of Unico Hair Salons Sofia Basile felt that there was something missing from the hair care market when she set about creating sulphate free hair products designed, sourced and manufactured in Australia for those of us living in Australian conditions.

With three children under the age of ten, a small, thriving chain of hair salons and a rapidly growing range of beautiful natural haircare products, Melbourne’s Sofia Basile has a lot on her plate.


And the owner and director of UNICO Hair wouldn’t have itany other way.

Since launching, UNICO has become a popular destination for Melbourne’s style set and the salons have accumulated a number of industry awards and accolades, including 1st place in 2001’s HBIA awards in creative colour. Sofia now employs 14 salon and sales staff and ‘never say never’ is her coy response to whether more salons are planned.

Far from resting on her laurels, Sofia’s spare time is spent working on the UNICO Formulations range of luxurious, natural and Australian-made haircare products.


“When I started hairdressing, I suffered badly from dermatitis on my hands, which almost made me consider another career. I tried some natural products which made such a difference, but I didn’t like the fact that they were imported. I noticed a real gap in the market for a homegrown eco- friendly professional hair range that actually worked, so I set about developing the perfect formulation. I released the UNICO Formulations range in late 2008 and could not be happier with the products.”

Derived from pure plant ingredients and enriched with vitamins and essential oils, UNICO Formulations products are free from all nasties such as parabens and SLS. The 11 gorgeous products are available in selected salons nationally and at adorebeauty.com.au.
